An Overview of Basic Wood Floor Repairs

by Guest on Feb 4, 2010

A small issue with a wood floor doesn't necessarily mean that you have to replace or redo the entire floor.. Your existing wood floor is probably in good shape, with just a few imperfect spots. It may be simpler and cost effective to make small repairs than to refinish the entire floor. You don't always have to hire someone to make small repairs.

The Life Cycle of the Tree

The Life Cycle of the Tree

by Guest on Feb 4, 2010

A tree’s life cycle begins with germination. An adult tree will drop a seed to the ground, usually in fall or winter, and the seed will lie dormant until spring. When the conditions are right, the dormant seed will start to receive warmth, water, sunlight and oxygen. This will spark the growth of the baby tree embryo and begin its life cycle. The baby tree will sprout a root, which will instinctively seek out groundwater. If it finds it, the root will then become submerged in the earth. As it takes root, a stem will sprout up towards the sun, usually carrying the seed casing with it, up into the air. Continue reading →

Understanding When to Plant Baby Trees

by Guest on Feb 4, 2010

Fall or winter time is a great time to think about planting baby trees. Most trees survive better if they are planted or transplanted while they are dormant. If you have baby trees, they may even look dead during this time. A small scratch on the bark of the tree should epose a green layer, reassuring you that the tree is, in fact, alive, but in a dormant state. Trees enter a dormant state when the days shorten and sunlight is in short supply. They need to stop growing and producing during the fall in order to store energy and prepare themselves for winter. When you are taking care of your baby tree, keep this in mind. Continue reading →

What are the Benefits of Garage Flooring?

by Guest on Feb 4, 2010

As people upgrade their homes or complete home projects, they are always looking for something else to improve. The latest trend is to spruce up their garage. The garage is slowly becoming more than just a place to store boxes and tools, or toss your recycling until your next trip to the recycling center. It is becoming a central place for activities. I think some of this has to do with the fact that a lot of new homes look roomy from the outside, but are not. They have small rooms, little storage and restrictive floor space. Continue reading →

Marble, Granite, Travertine and other Natural Stones

by Guest on Feb 4, 2010

Stones such as marble and granite are abundant in the nature, but not every stone can be used for architectural purposes due to unfavorable physical and chemical characteristics. It takes geologists many years to discover one usable stone quarry. In general, natural stones fall into three categories, sedimentary, which were formed through deposition in the oceans or rivers; igneous, which is associated with lava activities, and metamorphic rocks formed when high temperature and pressure altered the mineral structures of sedimentary or igneous rocks.
